Frequently Asked Questions:
What can I expect when I arrive for my scheduled appointment?
We’ve structured a limited number of patients to ensure minimal public interaction within the office space to reinforce proper social distancing protocols. We are scheduling 1 patient in at a time
Are there steps in place to monitor patients and associates?
The safety of our patients, associates, and communities we serve is our number one priority. Patients, doctors and associates will have their temperatures monitored and will be required to answer Covid-19 specific questions.
What specific steps have you taken regarding the office space?
We’ve implemented a COVID-19 specific protocol. This protocol includes instrument disinfection, thorough surface cleaning, and eyewear sanitizing between patients.
